Back tracking to Christmas ….


Something a little different for me - my first completed mini book. My sisters sort of step daughter had a little boy Jack in October, so for Christmas I decided to make the parents a little book to keep some of his first Christmas pictures. As usual with the run up for Christmas it was left as the last  thing to do so I didn’t have the time to really go to town on it, but they were over the moon with it. This what I came up with.

I think the papers were Bo Bunny which I purchased at Scrapbook Sisters.

I left areas for Rachael to put in her pics and any journaling she wanted.

These two pages had Glamour Dust around the swirls but you can’t really see it in the pictures.

The snow flakes were cut from a Sizzix die.

A friend cut out the train & rocking horse for me on her Cricut.

jan 11 034 Sorry the photos are a bit naff. Don’t you just hate it when the pictures look ok on the camera but once you get them onto the computer they are not all that! By this time what you have photographed has gone so you can’t do them again.

I enjoy doing these mini books and have another two on the go – well have been on the go for a long long time so I must get them finished.

Thanks for stopping by
